    Default Help needed

    SHOUTS AND whispers.
    Write a program that reads in a line of text and then outputs that line of text first in all uppercase letters and then in all lowercase letters.

    INPUT and PROMPTS. The program prompts for a line of text as follows: "Enter the text: " and then reads in an entire line of text as a String .

    OUTPUT . There are four lines of output . The first line is "The text in all upper case is: ". The second line is the line that was read in, displayed in all uppercase. The third line is "The text in all lower case is: " and the fourth line is the original line that was read in, displayed in all lowercase.

    CLASS NAMES. Your program class should be called ShoutAndWhisper.

    This is what I have so far:

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class ShoutAndWhisper
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    Scanner scannerObject = new Scanner (System.in);

    System.out.println("Enter the text: ");
    scannerObject.next();

    System.out.println("The text in all upper case is: ");

    Scanner's reading method has a return type of String Scanner (Java Platform SE 7 )
    and String is capable of converting a text into uppercase or lower case String (Java Platform SE 7 )

    If you are inputting text via a string literal, shouldn't your input be:

    scannerObject.nextLine()
    If to Err is human - then programmers are most human of us all.

    Default Help!!!

    HATE and LOVE.
    Write a program that reads in a line of text and then outputs that line of text with the first occurrence of "hate" changed to "love". For example, a possible sample dialog might be the following:

    Enter a line of text.
    I hate you.
    I have rephrased that line to read:
    I love you.


    You can assume that the word "hate" occurs in the input. If the word "hate" occurs more than once in the line, your program should replace only the first occurrence of "hate".

    INPUT and PROMPTS. The program prompts for a line of text as follows: "Enter a line of text: " and then reads in an entire line of text as a String .

    OUTPUT . The output is "I have rephrased that line to read:" followed by a new line consisting of the original line transformed as described above.

    CLASS NAMES. Your program class should be called HateToLove

    Please read String (Java Platform SE 7 )
    String object in java is capable of replacing the first occurrence of the specified word.

    Please:

    1. DON'T post duplicate topics (you're nearly a spammer and further duplicate posts will require further admin action.)

    2. DO post your code correctly.

    What haven't you figured out yet? If you still have questions about posting topics or code, then ask (you can PM me) or read the Announcement topic at the top of the sub-forum. If you still have questions about your program, then provide what you've done with the advice already given, the results you've experienced, post your updated code, and ask any new questions you have. Posting the same thing over and over again will not get you the help you need.

    Editing your posts that have been responded to is another DON'T, because it modifies or eliminates the context of the response, typically making it pointless and a waste of time. Stick by your posts and move on, hopefully forward, even when you've made mistakes. We all make mistakes, and we do our best to learn from them and move on.

    Good luck!
